Sony was expected to unveil their highly anticipated PlayStation Neo console during their E3 2016 presentation. Although the company did not reveal the new console, Sony acknowledged its existence, confirming it to be under-production.
While Sony once again managed to win at E3 this year, Xbox was still able to steal some of the limelight thanks to Xbox One S and Scorpio. But it looks like Sony has more PlayStation announcements in the coming weeks.
According to Wall Street Journal, Sony will be revealing the PS4 Slim along with PlayStation Neo at the Tokyo Game Show in September. The tweet below by WST’s Tokyo tech reporter Takashi Mochizuki confirms “PlayStation 4 Slim.”
Over the years, Wall Street Journal has been lauded for its credible reports. Although we have yet to receive an official statement from the company regarding the leak, the information comes directly from Sony’s analyst, confirming the reports authenticity.
As of now we have no details on PS4 Slim’s internal components, specs and its physical attribution. However, if Sony plans on rivaling Microsoft, it would definitely have to upgrade the slim version of their latest-generation console.
During E3, Xbox One S was revealed with exciting features like 4K display and 2TB hard disk capacity. The console has been confirmed to launch on August 31, 2016. If the existence of PlayStation 4 Slim is true and Sony is serious about competing sales wise with Xbox, we can expect the Slim to release this fall.
In other news, Sony has also confirmed that the release of PlayStation Neo wouldn’t affect the lifespan of PlayStation 4 as the current generation console. However, it’s possible that it wouldn’t last as long PlayStation 3 did.
Sony fans can have look out for the company’s possible announcement of PS4 slim and PlayStation 4 Neo at Tokyo Game Show.
